It is expected tomorrow the conservatives will release their platform for the 2011 election. There’ll probably be a significant focus on policies for Canadian families. All indications are that the document will showcase the conservative party as strong stewards of the economy . In short a plan that Canadians from coast to coast can get behind.
The Conservatives will release their platform on Friday in Toronto, setting the stage for their leader, Stephen Harper, to provide more detail to voters about what the party would do with the majority mandate it seeks.
Harper will be at the campaign event where the platform is released, said the Tories’ national campaign chair, Guy Giorno.
The move comes just one day before the two-week mark of the campaign, and several days before next week’s crucial televised leaders debates.
“The platform has to come out at some point,” Giorno said in an interview. “This is the point in the campaign we thought was the appropriate time to lay it out for the voters.”
It is expected that the platform will highlight the measures that the Conservatives proposed in their recent budget that was tabled before the government was defeated in the Commons.
